Vladivostok gets Terex harbour crane
By Laura Hatton02 September 2014
The Pacific port of Vladivostok in Russia has taken delivery of an electric Terex Gottwald Model 3 G HSK 3432 portal harbour crane from Terex Port Solutions.
The port is owned by Pacific Logistic. The G HSK 3432 lifts 79 tonnes. Track gauge is 10.5 metres and the portal clearance is 6 m. The model was ordered to help with handling containers and vehicle parts at the port’s Sollers Terminal.
Sergey Dorozhkin, Pacific Logistic CEO, said, “Sollers has been making vehicles for a number of international manufacturers here since 2012 and, for the long-term supply of the works with vehicle parts, a crane had to be obtained quickly which could unload the vessels reliably and efficiently.”
The G HSK 3432 harbour crane satisfied these criteria and best fitted in with the local infrastructure conditions. It is not only fitted with its own on-board diesel generator, but also with equipment for connecting to an external power supply, to offer the operator the required power supply redundancy. Use of the external power from the terminal’s electricity supply also increases the efficiency of the crane, while at the same time reducing noise emissions in the terminal.
